July 25, 2018, Vancouver, British Columbia – Vodis Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CSE:VP, FWB:1JV1) (“Vodis” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that the Company has entered the Confirmation of Readiness stage to become a licenced producer under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) at its Delta, BC facility. The Confirmation of Readiness stage is the final stage before obtaining a licence from Health Canada to cultivate cannabis under the ACMPR.
As previously announced, Vodis undertook upgrades to its Delta facility. These upgrades included the installation of specialized wall finishes in the production and processing areas, upgraded Ceramic Metal Halide and LED lighting, installation of Ample Organics software for seed-to-sale tracking, and upgrades to the internal physical security of the facility. The Company is completing these upgrades and plans to file a comprehensive Confirmation of Readiness evidence package with Health Canada in the coming weeks.
Vodis CEO, Ivan Miliovski, states: “This is an important milestone that gets us closer to obtaining a cultivation licence at our Delta facility. We are very excited about the path forward and creating the shareholder value that we set out to achieve.”
The passing of the Cannabis Act has dramatically expanded the Canadian cannabis market. While Vodis intends to sell into the various provincial recreational markets, the company remains committed to the many Canadians that have expressed interest in purchasing high-quality Vodis product for medical purposes. The Company encourages future patients to join our email mailing list at https://vodis.ca. The Company is also continuing its brand and future-patient outreach efforts at the Grow Up Cannabis Conference and Expo in Niagara Falls, Ontario on September 7-8, 2018.
